The siblings explained that their parents were part of the Windrush generation and the beloved radiogram was one of their first purchases after arriving in the UK from Dominica in the Caribbean.

“Iit was a room my dad and mum mainly used on Sundays because it was the big social day. Uncles and aunts came, we had lunch and we put on music,” explains Louisa.

Fredericka added: “It’s a bit of a treasure. Over the years after mum’s passing things have changed a lot and maybe it’s dwindled a bit so there wasn’t the same amount of people because that’s what Mom arranged.

“After our dad passed away in 2013, when the family would get together, we would play some dad tunes on it, and then about three years ago it stopped.”

Viewers took to Twitter to comment on the touching moment, with one person writing, “I’m not crying watching these sisters listen to Nat King Cole on this radiogram. Definitely not,” while another added: “And if you’re out of shape at the opening bars of Nat King Cole’s Mona Lisa, then you’ve got no heart..”
